    Little Zelda is a small cafe in Crown Heights. With super friendly staff, this is the kind of place where you end up talking to nearby patrons. Lots of baked goods, good coffee, great atmosphere. Read more

    LITTLE Zelda. It looks like the perfect little date spot from the street... but it's way too tiny. Coffee is good, so stop by and take one to go.

    Good mocha, patrons and service. Delicious apple turnover. Superb atmosphere. Cushy narrow bench and petit tables at first blush seem silly, however, they are great. I love this cozy café comme boîte.

    Try their home made pop tarts (like the pear chipotle or strawberry balsamic)! Their almond chocolate croissants are great too!

    The quintessential neighborhood cafe, super small, super cozy, pulling inconsistent-but-still-pretty-good shots of Toby's Estate. Get your loaf of Blue Duck Bakery bread here.

    For people who like their coffee many ways but can appreciate holding the cream and sugar for an amazing roast - drink this coffee black. SO good.

    tiny hipster cafe that i actually like! very community focused, I’ve seen some great apartment postings and is a place to catch up quietly with friends, luvers, or none of the above

    Latte and sea salt chocolate chip cookie were both great. Friendly baristas! Limited seating.

    so-so coffee, but an admirably courteous staff that gives the cozy spot a friendly, neighborhood feel that's even better than a warm hug on a winter's day

    Get a chocolate pop tart. And don't be intimidated if there's a line when you walk in--they get through the line pretty fast despite the location being so small.

    So cozy, great coffee and the bagels next door are out of this world. Try the pumpernickle with scallion cream cheese.

    Great coffee and baked goods. Perfect place to stop in the morning when nibbling on a breakfast sandwich from the shop next door; Wedge.

    This cafe has a cute store front but I was surprised by how TINY it is inside. The interior decor is quite retro. A good selection of drinks but when I went, the food was all gone. Wifi available!

    You can open a tab with this place on Square to pay for a friend or date without having to wait at the counter to cover their order--perfect if you need to switch laundry across the street.

    Very cozy coffee shop with some outdoor seating as well. A good local alternative to the Starbucks down the road.

    If you're not in the mood for coffee, they brew a mean hibiscus iced tea.

    In addition to the rest of the tips, take a moment to listen to the excellent soundtrack of 1920 music playing in the background.

    Cheddar chive biscuit. Have an "Oh, yes, of course!" ready when the barista asks if you'd like it warmed.
